Inner Glow (2020)

A geometric installation which reverses the purpose of light. Instead of spreading light outwards, it sends it inwards. Each light can be controlled individually.

The piece is made out of upcycled materials from local scrap yards. The shape is a polyhedron in the form of an icosahedron with 20 sides, 12 corners and 30 connectors.
